Grapes (Angoor) in Ahadith:

۞  Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:
None of you should use the word al-harin (for grape) for the heart of a believer is karm (worthy of respect).
(Sahih Muslim, The Book Concerning the Use of Correct Words, Book 40, Hadith 9)

۞ Wa’il bin Hujr (May Allah be pleased with him) said:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Do not say Al-Karm when talking about grapes but say Al-‘Inab or Al-Habalah.”
(Riyad as-Salihin, Book 18, Hadith 231)

۞ Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihi Wa’sallam) said, “You have raisins (Munaqqa) which make the colour of the face handsome and remove the phlegm”.

۞ Narrated Abdullah bin Abbass (R.A): Raisins were soaked for Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihi Wa’sallam). He used to drink this syrup that day, the next day and sometimes the third day.
